Motorino's Brussel Sprout & Pancetta Pizza

The blogs have been abuzz about Motorino Pizza ever since the first location in Brooklyn opened.  Victoria Day weekend I went to the Motorino's East Village location, because I just had to try this pizza for myself. In particular, I wanted to try the famous brussels sprouts and pancetta pizza. You all know by now about my love affair with brussels sprouts, but you may be thinking I'm a crazy person for wanting it on a pizza... but let me tell you that it does not disappoint and this odd combination is incredibly tasty!  We also had the Soprassata Picante pizza, which was good, but not as good as the brussels sprout.

Motorino serves traditional Neapolitan pizza.  The restaurant usually has a seasonal pizza on special (Brussels Sprouts is technically one of the seasonal pizzas as well) and of course the day we were there it was an oh-so trendy Ramp pizza (we didn't try it though).  We were lucky to get a table at 7:30 on Sunday night, but by the time we left there were at least 5 groups waiting outside. Apparently they have a killer prix-fixe lunch deal too (if only I lived in NYC to take advantage of that!)
